Tippy Finds a Home is the story of a little rescue dog who is all alone in the world and searching for his forever home. It takes some doing, but Tippy has faith, and eventually he finds a family that is perfect for him. With beautiful illustrations by Susan Spellman, Tippy’s story will touch your heart!

Author Evening with Lisa Bunker  

Author Evening with Lisa Bunker
White Mountains Pride Week

Tuesday, June 25, 6pm

White Mountains Pride WeekAs part of White Mountains Pride Week this year we will be hosting author Lisa Bunker here at the bookstore. She will be here to talk about her latest book, ZENOBIA JULY, which was just released on May 21st.

We first meet Zenobia standing outside her new school on the first day of class, trying to work up the nerve to go in. No one knows that it's her first day ever going to school as the girl she has always known herself to be, despite having been born with a male body.

​Zen has had as hard life, growing up in a family that did not accept or support her gender identity. One way she survived was by taking refuge online, where she discovered her natural genius for coding and hacking. Now she finds herself in a new city with a new family, and a second chance that's really a first chance to be her real self in the world.

 She makes friends, but also tangles with a queen-bee girl and a cyber rival. And when someone vandalizes the school website, she has to decide whether to lie low and hide her gifts, or offer to help and risk the trouble that increased exposure could bring.

​Lisa Bunker has written stories all her life. Before setting up shop as a full-time author she had a 30-year career in non-commercial broadcasting, most recently as Program Director of the community radio station in Portland, Maine. Besides Maine she has made homes in New Mexico, Southern California, Seattle, and the Florida panhandle. She now lives in Exeter, New Hampshire with her wife, also an author, and her cat. In 2018 she was elected to represent her town in the New Hampshire House of Representatives. She has two grown children. When not writing she plays piano, practices yoga, plays chess, and studies languages.

White Mountains Pride is a volunteer based committee located in North Conway, NH who came together in the summer of 2018 with the goal of creating the White Mountains first annual Pride event. It is their hope that White Mountains Pride Week and The White Mountains Pride Festival become a great tradition of celebrating our region’s diversity and paves the way for creating communities of safety, security, and celebration for each and every one.

The Find Waldo Local Campaign begins on Monday, July 1, at White Birch Books and the White Mountain Independents, a network of locally owned and operated stores in the Mt. Washington Valley. The event, sponsored by Candlewick Press, leads participants on a scavenger hunt through their towns’ business districts on a search for the elusive, red-and-white-stripe wearing picture book character.

This year, as in the past, shoppers who spot Waldo at participating local owned businesses in July become eligible for prizes throughout the month and when they turn in their cards to the bookstore. The celebration then concludes with a closing ceremony or wrap-up party at White Birch Books at the end of the month. Participants will get a “bingo” card with all of the participating businesses listed and can get started from the bookstore on July 1st.

Once we get closer to July 1st we will start listing all of our fellow businesses on our website and FB page or just look for the White Mountain Independent blue flags while driving around the valley. We will be posting photos of where Waldo is in town on our Facebook and Instagram throughout the month. It’s a great way to visit some of our local businesses in a really fun way!
